Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream

adapted from: Fake It Frugal

4 Tbl. melted butter

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

6 Tbl. sugar

6 Tbl. light brown sugar

1 c. + 2 Tbl. all-purpose flour

1/4 c. water

1/2 c. mini chocolate chips

Combine melted butter, salt, vanilla, sugar and brown sugar.  Add the flour and water and stir to combine.  Add the chocolate chips and stir well.  

Ice Cream

1.5 quart vanilla ice cream, slightly softened

1/3 c. light brown sugar

Or use homemade vanilla ice cream

Add light brown sugar to slightly softened vanilla ice cream (this will make it taste rich).  Add the cookie dough chunks and place in an air-tight container and freeze.  You do not want the ice cream to get too soft or it won't re-freeze well. 


Jenn's Notes:  I used a wooden spoon to stir together all of the cookie dough ingredients, no need to dirty your mixer and beaters.  The dough is pretty sticky and that is why I refrigerated it until it was firm.  You can use it right away, it will just be a little messier.  I added my cookie dough to homemade vanilla ice cream and it was DIVINE.  I posted a half of a batch of the original recipe and it will still give you TONZ of cookie dough.  You could always cut the recipe back some more or just keep the extra in the fridge or freezer to snack on!!  The possibilities are endless . . . . . add some to homemade vanilla ice cream, chocolate fudge ice cream or mint ice cream?  Or switch up the cookie dough, instead of adding chocolate chips, add mini m&m's, toffee chips, Oreo's or chopped up candy bar!  Yummy!
